and me the day before my water broke... a week early!

As you all might know we did not find out the sex of the baby. We were overjoyed at the birth of our daughter! My water broke a week before her due date, of course when my mom flew to Boise to visit my grandpa :). I went to the hospital got admitted and was really only in labor for a few hours (we had to go early since I tested positive for GBS and needed antibiotics for 4 hours prior, and since I was only in labor with Hudson for about 4 hours, they wanted me in right away) but it really was an easy experience, I got to the hospital not having contractions and from the time they started it was about 5 and I was dialated to a six and then around 6 am I was at a seven... I went from 7cm to 10cm in the course of 5 minutes. and pushed again for about a half an hour. And then we had our little girl... I'll never forget Donny telling me "it's a girl!"

Hudson absolutely loves her! It really warms my heart to hear him in the morning say, "look at her mommy, just look at her" :) I have to watch him though as sometimes he loves her a little too much... I caught him trying to carry her the other day... goodness I had just turned my back for about a minute... my boy....

And Lilah, she's amazing. She sleeps, something Hudson was and still is not very fond of. She is an absolute joy... Just our little princess and we are all in love! We just got newborn pictures taken yesterday so hopefully birth announcements will be going out soon.
